November 5 that the US “Break through the Line of Defense” website published a report on October 30 entitled “China Will Beat the United States and Russia Again in the Space Launch Race”, stating that China has won the space launch race for three consecutive years. The full text is excerpted as follows:
According to a report by the US Bryce Space and Technology Corporation, as of September 30, China has launched more satellites this year than any other country. This will enable China to win the space launch competition for three consecutive years.
If it were not for the space exploration technology company, which mainly launched its own “interstellar connection” program aimed at providing a worldwide Internet from space, the United States would be far behind China.
Russia lags far behind the other two major space powers and ranks third.
According to the German Gunter Space Page website, the satellites launched by China this year include multiple remote sensing 30 satellites. The latest launch of the Remote Sensing 30 satellite was on October 26.
Research by the Center for Strategic and International Studies shows that China led the world in the number of launches last year. This study was published on November 5, 2019, but was updated in August of this year.
Although China may launch faster than any other country, it still lags far behind the number of US satellites in space. According to the satellite database of the Union of Concerned Scientists, as of August 1, there were 2,787 active satellites in orbit — 1,425 US owned/operated.
Data picture: At 23:19 on October 26, 2020, my country used the Long March 2C carrier rocket at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center to successfully send the remote sensing 30 group 07 satellites into the scheduled orbit, and the launch was a complete success.
